Two Xbox ones on Virgin Media Super Hub 2

Hi All,

Fully appreciate if anybody can assist me on this issue. Essentially I have 2 Xbox ones in separate rooms each connected to their own power line plug which connects to the main powerplug which is connected to the router itself. We were trying to play Call of Duty Black Ops 3, 2 players on each machine. Now when we party up and try to search for players the other 2 players on the other console get booted off and essentially the game searches for new players. I have opened all necessary ports through port triggering with DMZ off and UPNP enabled. I have reserved both ip addresses within DHCP, yet still no luck. Both consoles no longer get Strict NAT Type but I have noticed that one console will say open Nat Type and the other sometimes says Moderate. This even sometimes does this when we play just one player on each console online together. Thank you for your time and patience.

Kind regards,

Matt

Re: Two Xbox ones on Virgin Media Super Hub 2

Hi Matt

Im not an expert, but I think your issue might be that both Xbox's are requiring the same ports (be it that you've Upnp enabled or not) and you cant map the same ports over to do different internal IP's. You can reserve the internal IP's, which is fine, but you cant send the ports to both IPs at the same time.

Here is a potential solution for you - get a cheap cable router, link both Xbox's to that cable router. Then set the router with a static IP and forward the ports your xbox needs to the static IP for the router. Switch UPnP on on the cheap router and let the Xbox's set that router up.

Having said all that, I've only got 1 Xbox, so cannot test it, but I heard a similar issue being described once and reason and solution made sense to me.

Just putting it out there in case it helps you.

Matthew

Re: Two Xbox ones on Virgin Media Super Hub 2

have you tried both xboxs wired?

the only way to beat this as you cant play with any options on the superhubs is buy a third party router, and then flash it with a third party firmware.

Asus firmware: http://asuswrt.lostrealm.ca/about the merlin firmware is recommended by many.
DD-WRT: http://dd-wrt.com/site/index

depending on what router you go for the above give you more control on what you can do, you can run certain scripts to improve running multiple xboxs on the same network.

Re: Two Xbox ones on Virgin Media Super Hub 2

Thank you very much for your responses. I Had a suspicion that i might of had to buy another router and place the Super Hub 2 as a modem. But what router would you recommend that is not too pricy that would handle more than one Xbox one and all other devices in the household.

Kind regards,

Matt

Re: Two Xbox ones on Virgin Media Super Hub 2

had the same issue with two Xbox 360's but we're both wired and got STRICT NAT.....bought a dlink dir655 and no more issues...I think also the dir 615 or 635 may also be ok.....if you get from Amazon and they doesn't do what you want you can always return..

 

make sure urge it's sold or fulfilled by Amazon.

 

the dir 655 should definately be ok, works for me....

Re: Two Xbox ones on Virgin Media Super Hub 2

Re: Two Xbox ones on Virgin Media Super Hub 2

Adding another router is not going to add more ports...

1) Delete all port forwarding rules
2) Delete the DMZ device if it is there.
4) Make sure UPnP is ENABLED
3) Restart the SuperHub..
 
If both games on both consoles fight for the same port then there is no easy fix for this.
It's a bit like having two girlfriends at once and you get a random text that says "Go to your girlfriends house"...
 
IPv6 could potentially fix this (But Virgin have not got that far yet!)..
a VPN network could also fix this (Assuming you get one that is not a NATted connection!).
 
I have read that COD does not allow two consoles from the same IP to be in the same lobby/game due to some type of cheats or some such ilk.. It's more likely that the bug has just been there a while and they dont wish to fix it!
 
Some devices do poorly with UPnP (Netgear in General do a really bad job of it!) so another router MIGHT fix the issue, but I wouldn't jump to that to get it working...
----
I do not work for VM, but I would. It is just a Job.

I would also make websites for them, because the job never seems to require the website to work.

Read or Not ....

Re: Two Xbox ones on Virgin Media Super Hub 2

I wouldn't recommend anything without AC

http://www.extremetech.com/computing/160837-what-is-802-11ac-and-how-much-faster-than-802-11n-is-it

http://www.speedguide.net/faq/what-is-the-actual-real-life-speed-of-wireless-374

The cheapest option around is to buy a cable and pin it to ya walls, ya can buy 10-50 meters pretty cheap on amazon, Ethernet is here to stay for a good few more years.

The xbox one does not use AC yet though, I don't know if they are planning to send out an update to enable it or put the new chip in the new xbox.
